I have enjoyed your show for some time now
thank you
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:14pm Al Romano:

As always, Irene, you begin your show softly yet powerfully. Thanks for the years in my ears.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:20pm listener mark:

good morning
wow, a song from March 6,1967 about war and forty-four years later we find three wars
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:26pm listener mark:

did everything just turn purple?
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:28pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

These colors ARE.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:29pm Pete L:

definitely an improvement
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:31pm Snortley:

Reminiscent of the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:41pm Handsome Harry:

Great background music, there.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:45pm Irene:

Hi Everybody! Thanks for the kind words as I get settled in. Harry, that background music is by Ralph Towner & Paolo Fresu. It will get a more play in the foreground soon.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:47pm TJ:

Been a while since I heard anything by dirty three.
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:49pm Academic Gav:

Yay! and Huzzah! for Dirty 3!
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:55pm clueless in MI:

Irene, Hi. flugelhorn or trumpet?
  Mon. 3/28/11 12:57pm Handsome Harry:

Ahhhhhhh, lovin' it.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:01pm Pete L:

this here's kinda music's yer best music ya know
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:05pm Irene:

I gotta agree, Pete! Lovin' it too.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:15pm listener mark:

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:17pm Irene:

I haven't gotten up the nerve to look at it yet.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:22pm listener mark:

So cool to sing along on a Petula Clark hit. Great choice.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:24pm Sean Gostage:

Hey Irene,
Great show, all is well in the universe, our clocks went forward over the weekend so back to the 5 hour difference
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:26pm Mike East:

This Huun-Huur-Tu reminds me of the music from the most recent Battlestar Gallactica (which is a good thing in my eyes, er, ears)
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:27pm Brian in UK:

Not seen these boys yet but Hanggai are pretty impressive, especially the singer in traditional dress..
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:31pm Cecile:

As a former ice skater, I'm always really disappointed that skaters don't skate to more interesting music. I'm sure it's partly because most of them are performers, not artists, but I think the artistic skaters would do well to listen to Irene's show. - she has the most interesting instrumentals Even this Huun Huur Tu song would be an amazing slow exhibition number for the right skater.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:37pm still b/p:

This is like a vocal version of Discreet Music.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:43pm yair Yona:

Such a beautiful song by Mountain Ghosts
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:43pm yair Yona:

Goats
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:44pm The Jamaican Chef:

They're ghosts after I get through with them, mon.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:46pm yair Yona:

Orphans Lament is also the name of a beautiful Robbie Basho song
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:46pm Cecile:

I think it might the name of a Cows song, too.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:48pm BSI:

Orphan's Tragedy was the cows LP, if memory serves...
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:49pm Cecile:

Oh, that's right. Thanks, BSI.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:52pm BSI:

It wasn't up to the apocalyptic awesomeness of, say, Daddy Has A Tail, but I'm a guiltless Cows digger.... it's all good.....
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:53pm Cecile:

You want me to be honest? I never could get past the first album. It was so awesomely perfect, I just never felt the need to go any further. I mean, a punk version of Koyaanisqatsi!
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:53pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good afternoon to all.
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:56pm aaron in chicago:

just keep that banjo coming irene
  Mon. 3/28/11 1:56pm Cecile:

But then I'm convinced that I'm the only point of intersection for the follwoing:

punk rock Phillip Glass
ice skating Huun Huur Tu
techno remix The Bats
Drag queen lip synch Yoko Ono
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:01pm Brian in UK:

Is Roscoe Holcomb related to Malcolm Holcombe? Put your pants on one leg at a time.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:01pm BSI:

Cecile: There's a really bad BSI plundered remix of Mr.Lonely by Bobby Vinton: that's gotta count for something....
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:01pm Cecile:

Nice!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:03pm Cecile:

I think my brain resembles the mystery box the contestants on the cooking comppetition show. Canned haggis! Sun Ra! Ernie Kovacs! Cheez Whiz! Rudy Galindo!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:08pm Sean Gostage:

Just loved the Steve Martin track, that's definitely on my "to buy" list.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:10pm Cecile:

Sean, he is a frighteningly talented man.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:10pm glenn:

what's the deal with comedians and banjos, anyway? steve martin, billy connelly. are there more?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:11pm Cecile:

you can't be unhappy when you're playing a banjo...
Didn't the Smothers' pull out a banjo once in a while?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:14pm Cecile:

oh, death and grief and sorrow and murder
*strums banjo vigorously*
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:17pm glenn:

tell that to dock boggs, the meanest, unhappiest musician ever.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:18pm JCJ:

@Cecile, yep, Tommy Smothers sometimes played banjo. Also guitar. He said he originally wanted to be a musician but didn't think he was good enough so went into comedy.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:19pm glenn:

i mean, dock boggs was the ty cobb of banjo.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:20pm Many Big-Selling Music Acts:

@Tommy Smothers: Never stopped us, dude.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:20pm BSI:

Actually I always thought the banjo had great "dark dirge" potential. But then, that's me.... (would love to turn a calliope into the devil's blackest sonic oatmeal, come to think of it...)
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:20pm Marmalade Kitty:

apparently, whispering can cause otherwise peaceful people to become agressive
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:22pm Sesame Seed:

Marmalade Kitty hates me.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:22pm aaron in chicago:

put yer banjo in sawmill tuning, boom it's melancholy time
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:28pm Marmalade Kitty:

I suppose whispering is not meant to be heard
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:28pm Parq:

If I could just jump in, here, I always thought that the banjo playing at the start of the theme music for the old radio version of Hitchhiker had a sombre, even sinister tone to it. Some of you must remember that one, yeh?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:29pm Marmalade Kitty:

I suppose whispering is not meant to be heard
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:30pm Cecile:

Yes, Parq. That was actually one of the two Eagles songs I like. Perfect theme music.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:31pm Cecile:

it couldn't be more perfect if they had comissioned it.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:32pm BSI:

Parq: agreed. That was a Paddy Kingsland piece, wunnit? Gotta get me one of these banjo critters.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:33pm Marmalade Kitty:

I didnt mean to post twice..
playing musical instruments = happy
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:33pm Cecile:

nope, BSI - it was the Eagles!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:34pm BSI:

jeepers!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:34pm Cecile:

Journey of the Sorcerer from the One of These Nights album.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Cecile, what's the other one you like? I bet it's not "Heartache Tonight"!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:37pm Cecile:

One of those weird album deep cut moments of the 70s, much like the country tinged song on Zapp 1
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:38pm Cecile:

Take It Easy. It's a funny song, and when you're listening to bad classic rock stations, it still leaps out at you in a good way.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

actually there's some good stuff on Desperado you might like if you like the banjo-y country stuff. I am an unrepentant Eagles fan thanks to my folks constantly playing them in my youth. Throw spitballs now.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:40pm Don Henley:

Though we will never be here again...
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:41pm BSI:

No spitballs from here. That's my explanation for the whole Bobby Vinton thing...
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:41pm Cecile:

I won't. You grow up with what you grow up with, hence my soft spot for Charlie Pride, Herb Alpert and the Carpenters.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh hell yeah! you guys are great.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:42pm Cecile:

And Johnny Mathis is a badass.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:43pm aaron in chicago:

i'm a little relieved my dad never played his music much. last time i checked he had two enya CDs in his car
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:44pm Cecile:

Well, I'm off to the doc. have a great afternoon!
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:44pm Looms:

Wonderful show and pretty good french pronunciation.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:48pm Pronunciation:

@Looms: May we? Mais oui?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:53pm Mike East:

@DCE - I'm the same way with the Eagles. I grew up with it, but all my friends who didn't give me shit for knowing all the lyrics. I think Take It Easy was a Jackson Brown collaboration, no?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:54pm Handsome Harry:

Highly enjoyable show today. This was a great way to spend the afternoon.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:55pm 12539:

Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey wrote Take It Easy, and Jackson recorded it as well.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:55pm still b/p:

Speaking of unlikely intersections and them Eagles....Ol' 55, eh?
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:55pm ?:

@Pronunciation: absolutely! :)
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:58pm Irene:

Thanks everybody! See you all on the radio next week.
  Mon. 3/28/11 2:59pm freaking in tongues:

Mais oui hadda widow wham.
